Dear LSA Members,
We are excited to announce our Fall Webinar:
Latinx Studies in the Classroom: Critical Issues in Pedagogy
November 10, 2023
5 pm EST/4 pm CST/2 pm PST (90 minutes duration)
This webinar proposes to engage questions related to pedagogical practices in the classroom. How do we critically engage our students so that knowledge is embraced as an alternative life experience and not just as academic capital? How do we model critical pedagogy in the classroom? What are the most difficult challenges we face teaching Latinx Studies? How do we validate the need for providing our students historical facts and specific content while creating new paradigms for embodied learning?
